On September 14, 2014 — The Marlins win their first game since losing star OF Giancarlo Stanton to an injury thanks to a dramatic 9th-inning comeback against the Phillies. Trailing 4 – 1, the Marlins score four times against closer Jonathan Papelbon as Jordany Valdespin, Christian Yelich and Justin Bour collect RBIs to tie the score, and a wild pitch by Papelbon lets in the winning run. A frustrated Papelbon then gets ejected by umpire Joe West for gesturing at the crowd before Steve Cishek pitches the bottom of the inning to rack up his 35th save, setting a new personal best. Papelbon will be fined and suspended seven games for his unprofessional gesture, but umpire West will also receive a one-game suspension for grabbing the pitcher’s jersey after the incident.
